The segment with CT Voices’ Dr. Lauren Ruth begins at 18:43.

State Senator Tony Hwang is helping unpack the complexities related to numerous proposed massive health insurance rate hikes under consideration for 2023. So we’ll help explain how you as ratepayers and health insurance consumers can step up and try to help stop or greatly reduce those proposed rate increases.

Then we’ll welcome Connecticut Voices for Children to talk about their 2022 State of Early Childhood — examining the accessibility, affordability, quality, and funding of Connecticut’s early childhood system.

And, on a similar subject, we’re reconnecting with End Hunger Connecticut, which just convened a round table of policy makers and experts discussing the future of the popular summer meals program, and what’s in store for kids in cafeterias all over the state this coming school year.
